The Sailor Swift Top is a simple tank top with a slight racerback shape that gives it a contemporary look and a slight cool-girl vibe. The classic striped pattern together with the delicate i-cord edges around the neckline and armholes makes this a true wardrobe favorite that you’re going to want to wear (and knit) again and again.

The top is worked top down in Stockinette stitch, so you can adjust the length to suit your body. First the back is worked back and forth, then stitches are picked up for both fronts and then all stitches are joined in the round to work the body. Lastly stitches are picked up around the neckline and armholes for an i-cord bind off edge.
